Goodbye spring!



Every year I eagerly anticipate cherry blossom time. See what happens when the rain falls? LOL! These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago in Marilyn & Rain's garden. Do you think it's all Rain's fault? The rest of the flowering trees were still blooming and the lilac was particularly delightful! I wonder who's showing off this weekend? Perhaps I should check them out!

We have had so much rain here in NW Oregon that my lilacs didn't have a chance to really strut their stuff this year. They produced plenty of blossoms but the rain rotted them before they were able to fully open. I barely got to smell them. This happens now and then. Now it is my snowball bush that is being effected. Rotten snowballs falling to the ground.

Jan, I'm originally from Vancouver, B.C., so I fully understand the concept of a wet spring. Toronto was funny this year. We had a dry, warm April and then a wet May. Totally opposite to our normal weather patterns.

warm sunshine through a clearing after showers;
and for a while, the scent of cherry blossom flowers....(apol to) Kyoshi
